Announcing WordCamp Mid-Atlantic

Mark your calendars for May 16, 2009. This is the date for the first WordCamp Mid-Atlantic, a regional WordCamp organized for WordPress users in Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia.

We have locked down the venue as University of Baltimore Thumel Business Center, which has also been the facility for a variety of other events – most notably, SocialDevCampEast. It is in proximity to major transportation hubs, including Amtrak.

We are launching the website and information about the event with the announcement that WordPress founder, Matt Mullenweg, will be attending (and speaking). Subscribe to the RSS feed to stay up to date on speakers and other information you’re going to need and I look forward to seeing you in Baltimore!

Update: We’ve announced that Matt Mullenweg and Anil Dash of SixApart will be the Keynotes.

    1-many of the churches and businesses don’t have a web site.
    (we want to offer generic templates)which we can update for our clients.
    2-we have event content thirty to sixty days in advance of the events – which our new site can display to keep people coming back, to find out whats happening at our redesigned site. also we can send out this content to readers via their cellphones and email blast.
    3-we have already created a social networking site:
    http://www.power4c.ning.com
    this site is a “christian entrepreneurship” site .
    we want to build similar type platform for the magazine to let
    our readers discover other readers and learn more about each other.
    we want to interact with our readers in everyway possible
    including video.
